Travel Diary: Sakura

Although this wasn’t my first time in Tokyo, I’ve never visited the city at the right time to actually catch its famous sakura or cherry blossoms. This time around, I was determined to see one. (Just one, Lord. Even if it’s just one.) And just one it is! I’m so thankful to our #CoolJapan #100Tokyo […]

Travel Diary: Asakusa + Tokyo Runway

If Europe has its cathedrals, Asia has its temples. This is why a trip to Tokyo wouldn’t be complete without visiting at least one of its famous shrines. During my trip to Tokyo last year, I visited Meiji Shrine. This year, we decided to go to Sensō-ji, a popular Buddhist temple located at Asakusa. Comparing […]

Travel Diary: Sushi, Kimonos and Nihonbashi

Here we go! 40+ photos of my first snaps in Tokyo. I tried my best to lessen them but I just couldn’t resist not posting them here. I’m such a photo-hoarder, I know. In my defense, I merely want you to experience Tokyo the way I did. And there’s no better way than to show […]

Cool Japan

As many of you may already know, I just recently visited Tokyo upon the invitation of Google Japan and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). I, along with Laureen and Tricia, were the Philippine representatives or ambassadors of METI’s special project called Cool Japan. This project is a government-funded initiative that aims to […]

Golden Glow

How fitting is it that I’m typing this beach post taken at Boracay last month from my hotel room in Boracay now? Yes I’m back in the island again. I used to think I wasn’t a beach baby but it seems like I am. I can’t remember how many times I’ve visited this island already. […]

Pure Shores

Aside from the beautiful view and clear waters, what else makes the beach so attractive? I think it’s the lifestyle that comes with it–so carefree and relaxed. It’s as if it’s calling out to you to just let go and LIVE. You know that saying, “Dance like no one is watching. Love like you’ll never […]

Pretty Like A Painting

I’m still not over how pretty El Nido is. The word “pretty” doesn’t even do it justice! It’s simply breathtaking. That’s the word–breathtaking. Imagine waking up to this everyday. I remember the last time this thought entered my mind. It was when I saw the Swiss alps. What a stark contrast. From snowcaps to sandy […]

Travel Diary: Olympic Museum

We’ve come to the last of my travel and style posts from Switzerland. How I wish I spent more days to tour around the country and its different cities. Oh well, at least I was able to make the most of my short trip and not to mention, the cold weather. Who knows when I […]

Travel Diary: Parmigiani Fleurier and Philippe Halsman at Musée de l’Elysée

This is the main reason why I flew to Switzerland–the press launch of Parmigiani Fleurier’s Métro collection. To be honest, when I first got the invite months ago, I had no idea what Parmigiani Fleurier is. A quick search on Google told me that Parmigiani Fleurier is a luxury watch brand from Switzerland who also […]

Nothing Like The Swiss Alps

It seems like everywhere you go in Switzerland, the snow-covered mountains look like they’re just a few steps away. Part of me (a very silly part of me) wants to just reach out and maybe, just maybe, I’d be able to touch them and discover that they were actually just painted on my background. They’re […]
